Real-life all too rarely offers stories that are quite as satisfying as fiction. "Bringing Down the House" is one of the exceptions. Cheating in casinos is illegal; and card-counting - making a record of what cards have so far been dealt to enable the player to make some prediction of what cards remain in the deck - is not. But casinos understandably dislike the practice and make every effort to keep card-counters out of their premises. "Bringing Down the House" tells the true story of the most successful scam ever, in which teams of brilliant young mathematicians and physicists won millions of dollars from the casinos of Las Vegas, being drawn in the process into the high-life of drugs, high-spending and sex. "Bringing Down the House" is as readable and as fascinating as "Liar's Poker" or "Barbarians At the Gate", an insight into a closed, excessive and utterly corrupt world.

Is this what the film was based on? Good find :-)

Yes thats what the film is based on, card counting. its brilliant waiting for this to come down thanks

heated added well worth the 3 quid

Didnt think that much to this movie, I'd give it 2 1/2 out of 5 stars, btw the 21 team were nearly exclusively of Asian orientation and in the movie they were mainly white. Not a bad watch but not great. Havent voted

I found the book much better than the movie, but isn't that normally the case.

one of the best books i have ever read and at this price is a bargain, i would recommend it to anybody interested in the Vegas lifestyle, and also the darker side of the place.

The book is absolutely awesome, the film is absolutely terrible!! Heat added
